I will make a lot of mistakes, and have to learn from them. It is part and parcel of the captaincy," the left-handed batsman said.<br /> <br /> Dhawan said he went with his reading of the game but admitted that he could have used spinner <a href="/tags/Amit-Mishra/post" target="_blank">Amit Mishra </a>more as he gave him just one over to bowl.<br /> <br /> "I thought this wicket didn't support turn but I should have used him more [Mishra]. Plus they had a lot of left-handers so we didn't think the spinners would do much. I felt the fast bowlers had more to offer on this track," he said.<br /> <br /> Dhawan said he was not worried at all despite a stiff target at hand to chase.
